The paper is from a new 6 x 6 pack I got last week called Paper Cottage from Basic Grey. It looked like a good choice for a feminine birthday card to me. The sentiment was printed on the computer and then cut from Elegant Edges along with the shadow. From the same page, I welded two border pieces to a rectangle to make the red strip and cut the end of the banner shape by hand after tracing the edge of the topnote shape. I think I'll use this sketch again to make more cards. Wait! I'll have to use it to make a masculine card for next week's challenge. It's great that you get to use the sketch twice like that. I'd better start looking over my paper.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
